Kid: Miss, you’re becoming black!

Me: it’s called a tan! I was outside all weekend and it was sunny.

Kid: No, miss. I don’t like your attitude. You have a black attitude now and I know where you learned it from! (another student in the class).

During a convo about how many years of school (post-HS) you need to do for certain jobs…
Kid: 8 years!!! (in response to becoming a doctor)
Me: Yeah but you end up making a lot of money so it’s kind of worth it in the end.
Kid: what about Scientists?
Me: At least 4, usually more!
Kid: Man! They may have a lot of money but it’s no wonder that Scientists don’t have a lot of girlfriends!
